Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7: preview
Samsung Galaxy Tab A VS Galaxy Tab S - Review
Samsung Galaxy Tab A Review (2016 Tab A)

5 Reasons For

Samsung Tablet Computers Have Excellent Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Samsung tablet computers and also specifically for Samsung tablets and found that in both cases Samsung had excellent ratings.

Flash Storage Media

This tablet supports a Flash storage media, which is the most commonly supported storage media on tablet computers of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

4.1 Bluetooth Version

The Galaxy Tab A supports a 4.1 bluetooth version which is newer than the 4 bluetooth version supported by most tablets of this age and type.

A 4.1 bluetooth version is actually the best supported Bluetooth version across all tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Galaxy Tab A.

A 4.1 BLE bluetooth version is the worst supported Bluetooth version amongst similar types of tablet computer.

Quite Long Continuous Video Playback Time

Tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the Galaxy Tab A have continuous video playback times of between 3h and 14h, and the average continuous video playback time is 10h. At 14 hours, the Galaxy Tab A has a quite long continuous video playback time compared to most of the other tablets that were released around the same time as the Galaxy Tab A.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Browsing Time (Wi-Fi)

The average browsing time (Wi-Fi) of comparable spec tablet computers that came out more than a year ago is 9.5h, and the browsing time (Wi-Fi)s range from 4h to 15h. With a browsing time (Wi-Fi) of 15 hours, the Galaxy Tab A has a quite long browsing time (Wi-Fi) compared to most of the other tablets of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Not 3G

Most tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to the Galaxy Tab A are not 3G. The Galaxy Tab A is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

Tablet computers which are 3G that might be worth considering include the SM-T561N Galaxy Tab E[pl_3127567_price], or the SM-T561N[pl_3837117_price] both from Samsung.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 4G

The Galaxy Tab A is not 4G. Most of the other tablets that have been on the market for more than a year are also not 4G.

Tablet computers which are 4G that might be worth considering include the Samsung SM-T535 Galaxy Tab 4[plb_2898880_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

The average processor frequency of tablets of a similar type and age to the Galaxy Tab A is 1.5GHz, and the processor frequencys range from 1GHz to 3.1GHz. The Galaxy Tab A has a quite slow processor frequency (only 1.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other tablets that were released one year ago.

We compared all the other 1.2GHz processor clock speed tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung SM-P550 Galaxy Tab A[plb_2963690_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a faster processor frequency then you might want to consider the Samsung SM-T561N[plb_3837117_price] (1.3GHz) which is also cheaper.

5 Other reasons to consider the Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Samsung released the Galaxy Tab A.

Four Processor Coress

Compared to the other 128 tablets that were launched more than a year ago that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the number of processor coress on the Galaxy Tab A is four which is average.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 4 processor cores tablets currently available including a cheaper tablet computer such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab E[plb_2956782_price] or you might consider a higher scoring tablet computer such as the Samsung SM-P550 Galaxy Tab A[plb_2963690_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

At 5 megapixels, the Galaxy Tab A has a fairly typical rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Galaxy Tab A.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available including a cheaper tablet computer such as the Galaxy Tab E[pl_2956782_price], or the SM-T561N Galaxy Tab E[pl_3127567_price] both from Samsung or you might consider a better rated tablet computer such as the Samsung SM-P550 Galaxy Tab A[plb_2963690_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 16 gigabytes, the Galaxy Tab A has a relatively average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec.

Other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available which you might also want to consider include the Samsung SM-P550 Galaxy Tab A[plb_2963690_price] which has better reviews; or the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70F[plb_2967726_price] which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 9.7 inches, the Galaxy Tab A has a pretty typical display diagonal compared to most of the other tablets that are a comparable age to the Galaxy Tab A.

We compared this tablet to all the other 9.7" tablets and we think the Samsung SM-P550 Galaxy Tab A[plb_2963690_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
